My invites ended up being a huge labor of love. But earlier this week I finally sent them out, and so far (from the few people I’ve heard from) they were a hit!
(my Future Sister-in-laws invite, between her and her husband they have 6 kids!)
(my faux liners)
Main invite was made from printing onto linen fabric. I used this tutorial to make them.
I designed all the branches on the invite and cards using a pen, a scanner and photoshop to clean them up!
I put together the pocketfolds (I would have just bought them, but found that paper was soo much cheaper!)
The belly band is a made from burlap ribbon. Unfortunatly I coun’t find ribbon the size I needed it, so instead I cut it down.
I decided to make leaves on the belly band with the guests names, and any extra seats they get (allowing singles a guest and so on) to clarify who is invited.
I designed all of the inserts as well (except for the cake!)
Instead of a envolope liner I stamped the inside of the envelope to make a ‘faux liner’.

Those leaves are so cute! And I love the fact that you’ve given the back of your RSVP postcard a purpose Makes them even more fun for scrapbooking.

I’m not the most crafty person… i absolutley love what you’ve done. One question though.. i cant wrap my brain around how you stamped the envelopes! How did you do them?

Stella07: I bought a fiskars stamp (I think?) and stamping ink and went at it! I have a seperate DIY here where I went into more detail. The only extra thing I did was that I made a mask or template to mask off the out side of the envelope from getting stamped.
Banook: The only thing I have a template for is the Vine-y leafs on the main invite. (okay, I lie, I might have all of the inner cards their as well). I might be able to find some of the othe stuff on my computer, but because I used so many different files you will have to be more specific on what you want, but I’ll see what I can dig up for you.

I did a copy of one I found at paper source. The envelopes were about 5 1/2 inches by 5 1/2 inches with the fold.
I bought 12 x12 paper, then cut 5 1/2 by 11 sheets for the cards. After cutting them out (using the blunt edge of my exacto knife) I perferated the cards at 5 1/2 inches to add the fold.
For the pockets, on a seperate sheet, I meaured out 5 1/2 x5 1/2 squares. I added 1/2 inch on each side for ‘hinges’, them cut the squares. Then I perferated the original 5/12 x 5 /12 square. After the squares were cut I cut each on half (so each triangle has a 6 x 6 side). I folded down the perferation then applyed rubber cement to the perferated edges of the pocket to glue them onto the card.
Sorry, I didn’t take very good pics while in the process.
I do not have templates of most of my cards or files that I used to create my invites. i do have a blank copy of the main cards. I will just add it here and anyone who wants it can download it.
